I have been playing in an 8 team 6x6 H2H league for 4-5 years now with Yahoo Free FB.

As strange as it may sounds we are all Aussies .... who love baseball .... and the excitement of a 162 game season .... don't forget we like cricket as well so we're used to games that take a longgggggggg time to get through.

I was just wondering about people's thoughts on the improvement in ESPN's free leagues and how it now stands against Yahoo.
I do like a couple of categories in ESPN which aren't available in Yahoo such as Game Winning RBI, as our league likes the 6th categories to be a bit of a lottery.
Assists last year however was a dismal failure as people were stacking their outfield with infielders with dual position eligibility.

Was planning to go with :
Hitting : Runs/RBI/HR/OBP/Net Steals/Game Winning RBI
Pitching : Win%/Save%/ERA/K-9/QS/HR Allowed

Never having played at ESPN I'm interested in people's thoughts who have played in both FLB services.
This is my first year as Commish and don't wish to ruffle the feathers of the long term players by changing things for the worse, or my reign will be shorter than Milton Bradley's visit to the Cub's Christmas party.

I like ESPN better because I've found they have a deeper pool of players and I think their news on players is better. I mean, they are ESPN after all. Would make sense they had better sports news. (Not analysis, news.)

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Hi Grey
Love the site and the work that everyone does to keep it interesting. Thank you so much.
Without trying to be a pain ..... now Stat Tracker is free ... does ESPN have something comparable.
I've been searching around and can't find much detail about it.
Thanks

ESPN's live updates/scoring have always been free. They actually update the standings in real time too which Yahoo doesn't do.
